The striker, regarded as the best player Vietnam have produced since Lee Huynh Duc, has scored over 31 goals for his country in 55 caps and was part of the side that won the 2008 AFF Suzuki Cup - Southeast Asia's premier international tournament.
Cong Vinh previously had a spell abroad when he joined Portuguese side Leixoes on loan in 2009, but having spent the last few years in his homeland, the 27-year-old is set for another spell abroad after Consadole confirmed his signing on their official website.
The ex-Song Lam Nghe An man is said to have put pen to paper to a five-month deal which will start in August and run all the way till next January.
Cong Vinh will also be hoping his spell in Japan can revive his career after a disappointing display in last year's Suzuki Cup, where Vietnam were knocked out in the group stage after picking up just one point from three Group A games against Thailand, Philippines and Myanmar.
